Omotoso’s trial to continue again

17 October 2018 - Cheryl Zondi, who on Tuesday testified about rape and human trafficking accused Pastor Timothy Omotoso's "intense" hold over her returned to the stand in the Port Elizabeth High Court on Wednesday. Supporters of causes both for and against the controversial televangelist clashed outside the Port Elizabeth High Court, with defence attorney Peter Daubermann being escorted to his car by police after insults – and even water – were hurled at him.

The trial of rape-accused pastor Timothy Omotoso and his two co-accused – Zukiswa Sitho and Lusanda Sulani – began on Tuesday, with yet another request for a postponement.All three are facing 63 charges, including human trafficking, rape and sexual assault.

Defence lawyer Peter Daubermann asked presiding Judge Irma Schoeman to allow a postponement, arguing that the State had delayed filing particulars pertaining to the charges.
The case was postponed to Wednesday.
The trial was due to restart after Judge Mandela Makaula recused himself in March.Judge Schoeman will be presiding. The first witness Cheryl Zondi, whose emotional testimony gripped the nation in October last year, previously said she was prepared to take the stand again to testify against her alleged abuser, “until justice is served”.
